Abstract Information :

As Helium price continue to rise and may fly even higher, laboratories are looking to decrease their dependency on Helium as a carrier gas. Of all three common carrier gases, Hydrogen is the best choice for capillary GC due to diffusivity and a broad working range, as long as safety concerns and proper controls are in place. However, Hydrogen is not safe for use.

Any solution must meet two major requirements: it has to be safe to use and must be justified by its Return on Investment.

In this seminar Sion Technologies will present a case study showcasing its groundbreaking patented device that allows, for the first time, completely safe use of Hydrogen as carrier gas while eliminating the release of split gases into the laboratory environment and saving 95% of the operational costs versus the use Helium
